This is F-102A 53-1799, the 9th F-102A built. It was never modified with the larger vertical fin as many other early F-102A a/c were. This a/c went on display in 1962. In 1978 it was moved back to Eglin AFB, just north of the city, for future display at the USAF Armament Museum at the base. Due to severe corrosion in the airframe it was sent to one of the target ranges on the base and was expended (destroyed) in the 1979-80 time frame.
